Introducing luminescent pigments to your palette brings more to your painting than shimmer and shine. What many artists have discovered is that while these pigments do possess reflective qualities, they also add dimension, brightness and tone to your paintings when mixed with standard colors.
This set examines the properties of Duochromes that bounce between two different colors depending on the reflective light.
Color Shifting Mixtures with Duochrome Pigments
Mixing with Duochrome pigments is equally challenging and rewarding. These mysterious pigments shift hue as you view them from different angles. For example, Duochrome Oceanic is a vibrant blue-green from one angle and a reflective gold from the other. Mixed with a standard pigment, like Phthalo Blue (green shade), it produces an entirely new blue hue. When you tilt your paper, the gold color shift is still visible but only about half as intense. Imagine painting sunlit ocean waves with this color combo.
Each luminescent pigment has its own hue and properties that create an expansive range of color choices for painters. In addition to pigment hue, or color, luminescent paint can also be described by four pigment types—iridescent, interference, duochrome and pearlescent.
